there, the blood can get through. >> think of this as a traffic jam blocks this off immediately and no cars can get by and all the muscle downtreatment doesn't get oxygen and starts to die. >> reporter: this is why says recognizing the symptoms is so important because every second counts. symptoms usually include a tight innocence the chest, shortness of breath. but in women, the symptoms can be different such as lower and upper abdominal pain as well as back pain. >> we tell our patients, you are always better safe than sorry. if you have any symptoms such as that, the best thing to do is call 911 and come in and get revaluated. >> reporter: not everyone makes it to the hospital and more than 100,000 people die every year from heart attacks. so what can you do to prevent this from happening to you? cardiologys recommend getting daily exercise and eating a healthy diet, getting regular check-ups, keeping a close eye on your cholesterol and blood
